And what will you do first?
After almost three months of having closed their activities, beach destinations in the Mexican Caribbean reopened the doors of hotels and restaurants, guaranteeing the compliance of all hygiene protocols, to take care of the health of travelers and workers.
Although measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 are still in force in the country, the state government of Quintana Roo authorized this Monday June 8th 2020 the reopening of hotels, restaurants, tour operators and stores in Tulum, Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Puerto Morelos, Akumal and Riviera Maya, allowing them to operate 30% of their capacity, which have been certified under new strict health measures established by the government, considering a gradual opening of beaches such as Tulum by June 15th.
Mexico implemented a system through a colored traffic light, in which a certain percentage of non-essential activities would be allowed from its medium level, based on the number of Covid-19 infections in certain municipalities, which guides the states on when they could reopen for tourism.
In preliminary information obtained by NITU.mx, the Riviera Maya Hotel Association has informed that the reopening will be under new sanitary standards to avoid saturation and the possibility of contagion. Other chains that have different properties will be staggering their openings month by month during the rest of the year.
Alejandra Aguirre, Quintana Roo’s Secretary of Health, tweeted the updated orange color this morning for Tulum, Cancun, Playa del Carmen , Cozumel and Isla Mujeres and Puerto Morelos (Mexico’s Traffic Light System), making gradual tourism possible.
“The economic reopening will be gradual and orderly. Let us act responsibly. All sanitary prevention measures continue”
